who hate paperwork. we were promised you wouldn't have to deal with this if you have a good healthcare plan. nobody talked about, there's junk healthcare plans that don't cover hospitalization, that don't cover anything, really, and people like it because they haven't been sick. i am with eleanor on this. i think it will be duked out in the end on what your values are. african americans are for this because they need it. the working poor, they don't have health insurance and the whites are the other group in this case, they are against it. this will be duked out. you want health insurance or not from the government? >> mort. >> let me give you a factual. determine whether or not you were full-time or part-time work. the first six months of last year, these are labor statistics, we created jobs and lost 97,000 full-time jobs. now, we created, it balanced out a little bit, but that is a direct reflection of the anticipation that part-time jobs are not going to be covered by this insurance program. so in terms of employment, 65% of the jobs this year are part- time jobs. this is all a r
for healthcare via the troubled website has been minusculed according to house committee numbers. it has been in the low hundreds. but how do the people who signed uup in the first weeks of obamacare compare to the first weeks of romney care in massachusetts. >> reporter: now we know the federal healthcare website healthcare.gov . is sick, we know that. we've been reporting that for weeks. now let's go back to when it was launched. we're now getting an indication of how sick it actually was when it was first launched. this site is responsible for attracting people from 36 states to buy healthcare under the president's new law. at the end of the first day just six people we are now told had signed up for health air. just six. at the end of the afternoon on the second day which was october 2nd that number had risen to 100, and only 248 people had signed up by the end of the second day. this, according to the house of oversight of government reform committee who just released these figures. this is bad news for the government because they said b by 2014 they reckon to have 7 million people signe
about watching these hearings. they're all out of healthcare.gov, you worked on trying to do big projects. what was your takeaway from the hearing today? >> my takeaway is that we have a congress that is dangerously illiterate when it comes to technology issues. i mean, looking at this thing as a programmer and technologist, it was rather like watching people who can't read or write trying to be a book critic. i had no fundamental on what was even good or bad, it was baffling. >> what did you see that emerged -- seems to me, republicans have moved past criticisms of that. yet, that seems to be the implementation order that this law needs to get over. >> it is interesting for sort of fiscal conservatives to move on, and worry about this issue, whether or not people can keep their health insurance. you know, the system that we use called the federal procurement process, in order to buy and build healthcare.gov is broken. and that is responsible for $500 billion a year of spend by the federal government. >> wait, i'm sorry -- $500 billion a year? >> yes, a half a trillion dollars a

, millions of americans are already benefitting, and they're benefits that are not tied to healthcare.gov. so madam secretary, let's clarify what's working despite healthcare.gov. is it correct to say that many of the improvements that the aca makes to employer coverage and to medicare where the vast majority of americans receive their coverage are not dependent on healthcare.gov? >> that's correct. >> so the delays and problems with healthcare.gov do not affect the millions of individuals thanks to the aca who no longer have to worry about lifetime monetary caps on their coverage that previously seventh them to bankruptcy? >> that's absolutely true. i think the quote that the president was quoted recently saying, if you have health care, you can -- you don't have to sign up for the new marketplace, was referring to the large portion, the 95% of insured americans whose plans are solid, stay in place, and move forward. >> i understand the frustration with the website. what i don't understand is why people are not similarly outraged by the lack of medicaid coverage in many of our states. do you

today and your testimony. i too am frustrated with the flawed rollout of healthcare.gov, i do appreciate your long standing commitment to improving the health care options for all americans and fixing this website quickly. i think it's important to note that in my home state of california and other states as well, the new exchange marketplace, we call it covered california, is working. rates -- constituents are finding that rates are as much as 29% less than those that they found on the marketplace last year. i'm thankful my constituents now have this option. as i look around to complement takes nationwide, it seems clear to me that political decisions in individual states have really made the difference for consumers. the governors and state legislators that embrace this law are delivering for the communities, but those elected who are trying to ignore the opportunities presented and continue to throw up roadblocks both here in congress and in state legislatures should not seem surprised that there are significant bumps along the way. this seems to me to be completely disingenuous. havi

healthcare.gov was closed overnight again. we brought in james capretta and dr. ezekiel emanuel. welcome to "fox news sunday." let's start with that pledge from the president when he was trying to sell obama care. here it is. >> we will keep this promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan period. no one will take it away. >> but it turns out millions of americans are not able to keep their plans, they're losing them. florida blue canceled 300,000 people. in california 280,000 policies canceled. in oregon 150,000. the white house now says the explanation was that that pleg only counted until the health care law was signed? 2010. and these policies are lousy. >> there is two things to it. there was no extenuating circumstances when he said you can keep your plan. he said clearly you can keep your plan. this is not a minor pledge. it's like the first president bush saying no new taxes in 1990 and 1988. he broke that pledge and he had the honesty to sa

. the problems with healthcare.gov are unfortunate and we should investigate them and then every american will have access to affordable health insurance. thank you, mr. chairman. >> before we swear in secretary sebelius, i want to clarify energy and commerce committee practice for swearing in of witnesses. the committee typically has two types of hearings. oversight hearings and hearings that focus on legislation and policy. secretary sebelius, for example, has testified previously before our committee to discuss issues relating to hhs budget or other policy matters. as is the case with all policy witnesses, secretary sebelius was not required to take an oath prior to testifying. today's hearing is different. it's an oversight hearing. it is a long standing committee practice to swear in all witnesses at oversight hearings whether they are private citizens or cabinet secretaries. >> mr. chairman, i thank you for your comments. i just want to join you in simply explaining that swearing in of the witness before an oversight committee hearing has always been under oath. that is a standard p
we are now five weeks into enrollment and the news seems to get worse by the day. healthcare.gov was down last night at 5:00 p.m.. it alsos of down on monday and it crashed last weekend. and even this morning when we attempted to view the site before the hearing, we were hit with an error message. but this is more than just a website problem. that was supposed to be the easy part, remember? americans were assured that their experience would be similar to other onlean transactions like purchasing a flight or ordering a pizza and that their sensitive personal information would always be secure. but after more than three years to prepare, malfunctions have become the norm and the administration has pivoted from saying they're on track to setting a new target date of november 30th. and for those few americans who have successfully applied, the website glitches become provider glitches come january 1st? americans are scared and frustrated. and this situation should rise above politics. many folks at home have spent hours or even days trying to sign up. they continue to take time a

healthcare.gov, which is great news. unfortunately, the site was only to handle six users at a time. have you tried restarting your computer? sometimes it helps to turn the computer off and then turn it back on. we don't know why, it just does. >> you know, if it were just that easy, jonathan, but kathleen sebelius is going to be in the hot seat later this week. how does she get in front of this to try to defend the disastrous rollout, i think is fair to say, the fact that they knew that october 1st was coming. it's almost as if they didn't know that date was a realistic one. >> it is a disaster. all she needs to do is just get out of there alive, basically. it's not going to go well no matter what happens. but i think while congresswoman ellmers raises some good questions that will be posed to secretary sebelius that she needs to answer because this is a fiasco right now, we need to distinguish between those who want to fix obama care and those who want to destroy obama care. and congresswoman ellmers and her colleagues in the republican party are not asking questions with the intent of maki
